The morality of nationalism by Robert McKim ( )
17 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 1,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nationalism is one of the most serious political problems in the world today. This volume is a collection of papers which address the topic of the ethics of nationalism. The contributors include some of the most eminent political philosophers and political scientists active today. The bulk of the literature on nationalism is in the social sciences and tends to focus on descriptive and prescriptive themes and issues of policy. This collection, however, focuses on the deeper moral issues that must be addressed if a policy prescription is to be well grounded
The ethics of killing : problems at the margins of life by Jeff McMahan ( Book )
25 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is a comprehensive study of the ethics of killing in cases in which the metaphysical or moral status of the individual killed is uncertain or controversial. Among the beings whose status is questionable or marginal in this way are human embryos and fetuses, neonates, animals, anencephalic infants, human beings with severe, congenital, cognitive impairments, and human beings who have become severely demented or irreversibly comatose." "In an attempt to understand the moral status of these beings, Jeff McMahan develops and defends distinctive accounts of the nature of personal identity, the evaluation of death, and the wrongness of killing. He contends that the morality of killing is not unitary; rather, the principles that determine the morality of killing in marginal cases are different from those that govern the killing of persons who are self-conscious and rational."--BOOK JACKET

Killing in war by Jeff McMahan ( Book )
22 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Killing a person is in general among the most seriously wrongful forms of action, yet most of us accept that it can be permissible to kill people on a large scale in war. Does morality become more permissive in a state of war? Jeff McMahan argues that conditions in war make no difference to what morality permits and the justifications for killing people are the same in war as they are in other contexts, such as individual self-defence. This view is radically at odds with the traditional theory of the just war and has implications that challenge common sense views. McMahan argues, for example, that it is wrong to fight in a war that is unjust because it lacks a just cause." -- Publisher's description
Ethics and humanity : themes from the philosophy of Jonathan Glover ( Book )
14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ethics and Humanity pays to tribute to Jonathan Glover, a pioneering figure whose thought and personal influence have had a significant impact on applied philosophy. Glover has made seminal contributions in topics that include genetic engineering, abortion, euthanasia, war, and moral responsibility. The essays collected here, written by some of the most distinguished contemporary moral philosophers, address topics to which Glover has contributed, with particular emphasis on problems of conflict discussed in his book Humanity: A Moral History of the Twentieth Century. There are also moving testaments to the influence Glover has had on colleagues, students, and friends. Glover himself contributes a series of replies that constitute an important addition to his published work."--BOOK JACKET
